Sacrificing space is almost a certainty when you live in the city. You adapt, you downsize and use the word ‘cosy’ to describe your new abode. It doesn’t necessarily become easier to live in the small confines but the convenience of city life often cancels out the little niggles. Saying that, I must confess that I could never live without outside space again (we did it for a year and a half and it was brutal, especially on a sunny day). I’m not talking about sprawling landscaped gardens or sun soaked patios (although that would be blissful), nope just good old plain fresh air. A small space outside of the restrictions of your four walls to enjoy a cup of coffee in the early morning sun or relax with a beer after a hard days work. Wouldn’t it be a huge bonus if that space had a killer view? Once again, I turn to the clever Swedes to show you how it’s done.
